Thai Food Festival @ Deccan Pavilion ITC Kakatiya

Thai Food Essentials @ Deccan Pavilion ITC Kakatiya Hyderabad

From my days in Bangalore, I have had a liking for Thai cuisine. What makes this cuisine special is its simplicity and aromas. Finally I got a chance to enjoy authentic Thai food this weekend in Hyderabad at Deccan Pavilion at ITC Kakatiya as they announced the launch of their Week- long Thai Food Festival. This food festival is on up-to Sunday, 24th March 2013 and is available for lunch and dinner. It is in a buffet format that comes at Rs. 1199 for vegetarian and Rs. 1299 for non - vegetarians. 

The Buffet was an interesting mix of salads, starters, main course and desserts. I started with veg Tom Yum soup that was light in texture, tangy and spicy in flavor and had big pieces of juicy mushrooms. It had a beautiful lemongrass aroma - an important and must have Thai kitchen ingredient. 


Starters were a delight as I got to taste Silicon Tofu - a simple preparation that was crispy from outside and extremely smooth and soft from inside.

Corn Cakes 

Corn Cakes were another veggies delight served with a red sweet and sour corn sauce. 

Prawn Salad 
Non-vegetarians too had a great time with Chicken Cashew and Prawn Salad.

Main Course and Desserts:

Main course was a mix of Thai curry and rice which was again flavorful and  nutty. We finished the meal with desserts but it was a task to pick and choose our favorites from the  many options available ranging from Indian sweets, to souffle, puddings, brownies to cakes and others.

Sweet Encounters 
ITC Kakatiya's 1st ever Thai Food Festival is being driven by Master Chef Som Wang, Executive Chef Shekhar and their team. I would like to congratulate both the chefs for putting together a delectable meal and for being wonderful hosts. 

Chef Shekhar - I had a great time and will be coming back for more!!
